Haha. I ran 4 miles in Christmas Day before consuming approx 10,000 calories.

Tomorrow am going for a sociable run whilst admiring my new 235!!!

OK - will look for an off road route.  Shall I come and pick you up in the car and we can go from our house?  Are you busy or fancy hanging around for lunch afterwards?

I'm sure I'd cope with 12 or 13, Lit? If you need a longer one you could also go with Lou. I'm a bit slow at the moment. Do you want on or off-road?

Run would be good, Lit. Do you mean this Saturday? I could maybe run on Sunday? Other days the kids will be off school so more difficult.

Well done to DT and Muddy!  Nice to finish off the year with.

No PB for me on Saturday but that was not unexpected.  Considering I was gasping like a gutted fish when only running marathon pace in the second mile I was happy(ish) to finish under 43 minutes. I was glad I went as think my mate who I was travelling with would have dropped out too if I hadn't gone and she got a massive PB so really happy for her.    Anyway, I ended up going to the Doctors yesterday.  More blood tests and some medication for reflux that may be causing my stomach pain issues - also talked about anxiety (lots of life stress at the moment but leaving my job at Christmas which should help, at least when I stop stressing about that!).  I'm going to stop googling the really sinister stuff now at least.  

Sorry - that's all very dull.  Just going to try and start enjoying running again now.

Think you might be right, DT.  I've just mailed to see if I can start with them.  You never know, right, but not sure I want to come last.

Does that make me an indecent club runner then, Lit?    I think you have to accept that you're a very, very good runner.  Bob Glover characterises by times in his book. I think he's class you as Semi-Elite.  I'm classed as Local Champion in some of my distances (when on form!). But maybe that's a bit more US'ey as I've only won one race (not counting Parkrun) ever.    

Very impressive PB, Skinny .  Amazing and bodes really well for London.  

And another great winning run from Muddy!  

So last week's XC was a bit of a struggle.  Came off the back of 4 days off running due to feeling a bit crappy (ladies issues) and was my least favourite type of course (bastard hilly).  So was miles back in the field compared to normal and yet still finished gasping and feeling my legs had been battered with a sledgehammer. Managed an 11 miler the following day that was much more like normal and a recovery run yesterday.  

I've got Telford 10k on Sunday - not really sure how to approach it as training not been great due to various spells of illnesses and when I entered I put myself down for the faster start in the hope I'd get dragged round to a PB but now I'm not so sure I won't make a tit of myself.  Oh well, it's only 10k .

Tommy has made me feel tired.  

I quite fancy that Lathkill race - my Dad grew up on a farm really close to Lathkill dale in Middleton-by-Youlgreave so I always feel a bit of an affinity to that bit of Derbyshire.

Well done on the prize!  It is a nice race, hopefully will manage to do it next year! 

Thank goodness you didn't lose your keys in the river!!!
